Black Friday for gamers – PS4 and Xbox Edition

It’s that time of the year again, when South Africans try to figure out how to do this Black Friday thing. If there’s one piece of advice we can give you it’s that online shopping is your friend. Especially if you’re a gamer who’d rather get some sessions in than face the stampedes.

PlayStation has dropped out of E3 2019

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) has just lost one of the big three consoles for 2019’s show. Sony has decided to pull PlayStation out of E3 2019, and do… something different.

Sony stealthily rolls out a quieter (but hotter) PlayStation 4 Pro

All PlayStation 4 players know that slight panic when their console sounds like a light aircraft taking off. Should you hard reset? Unplug it? Maybe position the room fan to blow directly on it?

Hardware updates like these rarely make the news, often flying u...[Read More]

Sony caves – You’ll soon be able to play cross-platform Fortnite with all your friends

Sony is finally enabling cross-play for Fortnite today. Yup. Really. The PlayStation 4 manufacturer previously blocked cross-play and progression between PS4 and Nintendo Switch and Xbox One for massively popular battle royale game, Fortnite.

You can now download PS2 and PS4 games on PlayStation Now

Okay, okay… we know PlayStation Now isn’t available in South Africa yet, but we’re being preemptive here. Sony is expanding the PlayStation Now stream-gaming service to allow users to download older PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 4 games.
